Establishment No.: p01325

USDA Inspection Report: 8 Nov 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.4(d)

Citation: At approximately 12:30pm on 11/08/2010, on walking through dry storage, Dr. [redacted] and I noted several (approx. 5) partially filled bags of dry ingredients being stored on a pallet. The bags were closed on top with several layers of tape. On inspection of the bags, three were noted to have identifiable labeling. Two of the bags were unidentifiable even with removal and replacement of the tape covering the opening. Regulatory control action was taken by placing U.S. retained tags #B36279325 and #B36279335 on the two unidentifiable bags. Mr. [redacted] plant manager, was verbally notified of the issue. On consult with Mr. [redacted] Dr. [redacted] and I were able to locate product labeling on one of the tagged bags. The label was small and difficult to locate, but it appropriately identified the product content. On inspecting the second tagged bag, Mr. [redacted] could not locate any labeling to identify the product. Using the coding on the bag, he was able to provisionally identify it with bags of carrageenan which were being stored on a pallet approximately 20 feet away from the tagged bags. Dr. [redacted] and I noted that this was a potential risk as unidentified and unlabeled product could accidentally be used inappropriately in other product formulations due to inappropriate storage, identification, and separation. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR 416.4(d).

Regulation:

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
